With Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking MPs to adopt a village for Swach Bharat in his Independence Day speech, we at Franchise India have taken a cue and have turned it into our CSR initiative. With this, our aim is to draw the attention of franchisors to this noble cause by asking them to adopt the road where they have a shop/store/outlet and keep it clean. With franchisors opening so many stores across India, the day is not far where we will have a clean India.
